1) Brigada Participants Reach 33% of 2021 Budget

We’re so grateful that, thus far in 2020 (including a great surge of gifts last week), Brigada participants have already reached 33% of the Brigada budget needed for 2021! Thank you! Brigada only happens because a bunch of people join hands and pull together. If you’re one of those who hasn’t had a chance to pitch in and CAN, please click Donate at any Brigada webpage.

Chiang Rai International Christian School (CRICS) needs teachers for the 2021-2022 school year. They are a strategic K-12 school located in northern Thailand with access to neighboring countries. They provide quality education while sharing Jesus with local and MK students, thus enabling missionaries to live on the field for a long time with their families.

7) Help David With a Moving Experience?

7) Help David With a Moving Experience?

These days, it seems like there are a ton of services that help missionaries do all kinds of things — and missionaries are very grateful! A Brigada participant named David wrote this past week wondering if there might be any existing service that helps missionaries move. His upcoming cross-country move feels rather daunting. If you’ve heard of such a thing, please tell about it in a comment. read more…

10) New Book, “In the Way,” Just Might Help Us Get “Out of the Way!”

10) New Book, “In the Way,” Just Might Help Us Get “Out of the Way!”

In his new book, “In the way: Church As We Know It Can Be a Discipleship Movement (Again),” Damian Gerke takes a long, hard look at current paradigms and perceptions for church life in North America. He then helps us plot a way forward with lots of possible coaching points for the future. When asked about his goals for the book, Damian told Brigada, “My hope is that this book helps set the stage for the church (particularly in the West) to discover its next steps, to refocus its calling, capability, and vibrancy, and uncover its opportunity that remains largely untapped. I hope for healthy and productive — not divisive — conversations about what the church should be, and then about what it should do. It would be my greatest joy to see this effort unify and invigorate the church.” May it be so. Find Damian’s book on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Way-Church-Discipleship-Movement-Again/dp/1733096299.
